As air-travel demand continues to rebound, Allegiant Travel Company (ALGT Quick QuoteALGT ) has launched a new loyalty program to attract leisure travelers.
According to a statement provided by the company, the non-credit card loyalty program, Allways Rewards, is the “first airline loyalty program designed specifically for leisure travelers.” Apart from redeeming points on flights, lodging and rental cars, the program offers rewards to members on event tickets, such as on sports, music and the like.
Members of Allways Rewards will receive one point for every dollar spent at Allegiant.com and two points per dollar on spending of more than $500 (excluding taxes and fees). Points, redeemable at .01 per point, can be used just after 72 hours of travel on Allegiant. There are no blackout dates, usage fees or minimum requirements for redemption of points. For members who travel with Allegiant within 24 months, points will have no expiration. Moreover, Allways Rewards members will receive credits for purchasing family travel tickets as well, since points are awarded to the buyer, unlike other programs where only the individual traveler benefits from the points.
